Album is out today. I am super psyched to go through it track by track. Above is Jimi introducing each song in that great accent and tone he carries. Buy this album!
Doves have been a favorite of mine since they first came on the scene. I was lucky enough to catch them last time they were in Chicago at The Vic and it was an amazing live show. I would like all cool musicians putting out new music to come to town as part of Lollapalooza. That means you Jimi.
In the first single Jimi tries to deal with Whiskey. But Jimi doesn’t know that whiskey doesn’t listen. Jimi forgets that whiskey just hurts you and makes you feel like a friend but then leaves you on the floor begging for death to come early. “Oh! Whiskey”
“Odludek” which is a Polish word, meaning loner or pilgrim. It fits the album, and fits where Jimi is at the moment. “I’m no hermit, but I can be on that loner vibe at times. Odludek just sounded like a crazy, loner pilgrim to me, and it reflects that I did this record all on my own, I’m not in a band now.” – Jimi Goodwin
